Anatomy of a Painting - Part 3
So here's a sketch using only 3 values of white, gray and black to try out what it will look like, composition-wise. White-out is apparently a different color than the white of my paper, but close enough. It looks busy to me, fussy. There is no real predominance of any one value, and IMHO one color needs to be a majority, another less so, and one should just be accents. That would feel more organized to me, a more pleasing arrangement. Oh... just noticed that this is cropped version, so I had better take a look at it as drawn out the other way as well. Looks like another value sketch is in order, this time with feet.
